reform. even to talk about trayvon martin. it's not right. joining me now, krystal ball and joan walsh. chris krystal, are you surprised just eight days after the bombing you're hearing stuff like this from a top republican like lindsey graham. >> the only thing you need to know about lindsey gram right now is that he's running for re-election. even though he knows better, even though he knows that dzhokhar, for example, is not going to be tried as an enemy combatant, even though he knows his allegations against the president are ridiculous, it's a way of him scoring political points. i'll say, you know, i don't think there's anything wrong as you were pointing out asking questions about, okay, did the fbi follow the right course here? >> the investigation. >> absolutely. but when you go for this nakedly political point instead, you actually undermine those sorts of honest investigations. because it turns it into political football rather than a real inquiry into what happened and if there was anything we could do or anything we could learn. >> i think, joan, there is a legitimate ques

chief of mother jones who broke this story. and krystal ball from "the cycle" here on msnbc. first, thank you both for joining me tonight. >> thanks, reverend. >> good to be with you. >> david, the fbi is now investigating these tapes. and today mcconnell's campaign released a statement saying, quote, we've always said the left will stop at nothing to attack senator mcconnell. but nixonian tactics to bug campaign headquarters is above and beyond. i mean, what's your response to that? was this bugging? is this some nixonian scheme? >> well, to begin with, we contacted mcconnell's office and his campaign over a day ago before putting the story up to see if they'd have any response. we never heard from them. even today after all this he, mitch mcconnell, won't respond to the substance of the story. instead, he said this was a watergate style bugging operation. the source who gave me the tapes has asked for a confidentiality. has asked to remain anonymous. therefore, i can't get into too many details about the origin of the tapes for fear of giving out any hints or clues about the iden

whose message is all over the place. joining me now, krystal ball and abbie huntsman. thank you both for being on the show. >> thanks for having us, reverend. >> krystal, there's a serious point here. this split is part of the civil war going on in the gop right now. do you agree? >> i absolutely agree. i think o'reilly and limbaugh are interesting proxies for the debate at large going on with the republican party. and for limbaugh it's no surprise that he's sort of trying to hold on to those old positions. not only does he, as he always does, see his market opportunity, this is his niche, this is who he needs to play to, but in large part when the republican party is talking about a rebranding, they are talking about rebranding themselves away from thinkers like rush limbaugh. i mean, he has been mentioned specifically in some instances, particularly the kind of offensive language that he's used towards women. so, of course, he is not on board with any sort of republican party rebranding. because that erodes his power that he's held for decades now. >> abby, you know this crowd pret

for politicians to listen. joining me now, krystal ball and david corn. thank you both for being here. >> thanks for having us. >> my pleasure. >> krystal, let me ask you, can the president apply enough shame and political pressure on the republicans to force them to act on these budget cuts? >> i'm hopeful. i'm an optimistic person, and i'm hopeful. but i think it's going to take a lot more of what he did today. frankly, the republican position on the sequester has been dizzying. at first they hated it. it was a sledge ma'hammer. it was going to be devastate ing. then they decided they liked it. now they decided these parts of it they don't like and they're going to blame the president for that piece. i think he really has to keep highlighting what the sequester means not just to air travel, but to a whole gamut of really important as much ass. as you pointed out in the lead, i think this is so important. you know, the people who are depending on meals on wheels, the people who are depending on head start, they don't have expensive lobbyists as you said, they don't have superpacs. they have the

panel now. krystal ball and toure are one-half of "the cycle" which appears just before this show. they're jealous for more airtime. angela rye is a political strategist, principle of impact strategies. we're delighted, angela, you've joined us. for that reason, i'm going to start with toure. i have a very simple question for you, toure. why do so many conservatives say such ludicrous things about same-sex marriage? i mean, louie gohmert goes to bed every night dreaming about, what, having sex with donkeys? what's the issue here? >> i have to scrub that image out of my head. i don't know how i'm going to do that. it begins with a religious descent to same-sex marriage which makes them say this is immoral, which makes them link it to other immoral things. >> there's no way in the old testament or new testament where humans are having sex with donkeys. i don't understand what you're talking about. >> i haven't read the whole thing. >> i have. >> when you talk about if this is immoral, we're going to say let's link it to other immoral things. the nation has moved fairly quickly on this iss

, god bless you. god bless the united states of america. >> krystal ball, sounds simple when he talks about it. we are trying to find a balance. there's a right to bear arms, a right to life. >> that's right, 90% of americans think it would be reasonable to have at least a background check before you exercise your right to bear arms. one thing that was clear to me in this speech, has been clear to us all along, has not been clear to everyone, that the president's engagement on gun control is not some political tactic, some chess move. this is an issue that he cares deeply about and is willing to use his political capital, as much as he possibly can, to get something done. now, will we actually get something done? it's not looking great in terms of universal background checks, but i have to say on an issue where 90%, 9 out of 10 americans support universal background checks, if republicans block this at this moment, they may be able to do that in the short term, but if there's no long term price to be paid for that, we don't have a democracy in this country. >> ari, the right to life,

, tell me about krystal campbell. what was she like? >> krystal campbell was definitely one of my favorite restaurant managers. i've been working in restaurants over five years and i've never met a manager who worked harder than krystal and kept such a beautiful face. she had a smile everywhere she went. any time you needed to talk to her, she would talk to you. >> that's one of the things her mom said. she smiled. >> that smile. very special. i mean -- we had a lot of memories together, working on the harbor islands, and i mean, working on those islands is tough. we had to do so much hard work. and she was the one person who put together and made sure everything got done the right way. >> i know you went to her wake to pay your respects. it must have been nice to see the outpouring of people. the line stretched down the block. so many people who loved her. >> it was very hard. i mean, i hadn't left my house until that day. i've been home. i haven't been able to really think or much -- do anything, really. it's hard to think something like this could happen in boston. it's a sense
